    Our mostly annual fall classic Mini run is scheduled for Sept 28.29,30 and Oct 1.

    Gitcher motors runnin and join us in Cuba, Mo for a great weekend of blasting around the southern Missouri hills!

    Right now we have:

    MiniDave

    Don Ipock

    Styers

    McKenzie

    WillieB from Atlanta

    Dan from Tulsa is a maybe depending on his schedule

    Dooder (Dean from OKC) is planning to come

    Of course our tour director Don Ruder

    And maybe a few others, should be a hoot and a half!

    Accommodations either at the Cuba Super 8 or the Wagon Wheel, I'll leave it up to the group to decide which but we should book as early as possible.

    Be there or be square, dudes and dudettes!

    Wish i could make it. New classic owner here in Springfield, Mo.

    Car Savvy, but this is my first British car. Still not exactly sure this car is reliable enough for a run that far.

    That far? We're right in your 'hood! :Thumbsup:

    I encourage you to come join us, we all have plenty of skills, parts and knowledge between us to get just about anything that can park a Mini fixed and back on the road! It would be a great first outing for you and your classic!

    Please understand this is not a heavily organized or scheduled event, just a bunch of guys who meet up and go cruise the backroads.....our goal is maximum fun and run time.

    Post up some pics and the story of how you got your car.

    Also, come join Restoration Mini, a site dedicated to the classic Mini and a bunch of very smart and friendly Mini guys.

    Here are a couple of threads on some of our other runs....including previous runs to Missouri and Arkansas.....

    Car is a true blue sportpack Mpi car.

    Already fixed:
    Injector connector
    Coolant sensor
    Thermostat
    Tune up
    Grounding points for better charging

    To be fixed:
    LF cone is collapsed
    Excess valvetrain noise (i think)

    Bought it in Dallas a couple months ago.

    We also own an 09 Cooper S.

    Cool, I have an 09 Clubman S, I used it to tow my classic to Texas this past March for another classic Mini event. It towed very easily too.....

    Sounds like you have it on the mend......bring it to Cuba, Mo and run with us!

    Dave, great to meet you at the show last weekend and thanks much for tipping me off to this Fall Run event. It's too late for me to accommodate it this year, but hopefully there will be another opportunity in '18 or beyond. Sounds like some superb motoring and fellowship.
